I know...staggeringly stupid of Australia....but then again...we sell anything to the Chinese....!!

Actually it's groups of Chinese, often students, known as daigou that go around and empty shelves. Products are then centralized and sent back to China.

Hopefully the quality of the masks are better than what some countries received in Europe from China. Some countries had to send most back since the quality was, well, what you would normally expect from China.

Bought them up now selling back at profit to protect against a virus they (CCP) released to the world. Said it before and I'll say it again. I hope the truth comes out about this. Sometime down the line someone is going to leak/defect and blow the whistle on the CCP and the truth of this.

You turned the concepts of the normal biological warfare upside down.  No country would attack another country by releasing the virus on itself first. Assuming if they are actually that stupid to do that, they would have prepared a vaccine in advance to use it on its own population first, not to scramble to develop it during the pandemic.

 

And buying low and selling high - isn't that the capitalism mantra? Or you expect the Chinese to show some communist traits and do it the other way around?

Why are you so confident that China did it? Do you have any valid reason or proof?

  1. It could have been done by some other country to destroy China, as they were developing super fast.
  2. It could be something that started naturally, due to some unknown reason.

 

lmao...I have no words

They had better keep all of their medical supplies since they just reported 1300 new asymptomatic cases today.

 

 

But but bit, there are no cases in Beijing. Imagine that.

It seems that the world has divided into two parts - the East and the West, since the last decade or more, and is increasing the divide rapidly. Where ever you see, it is the West that's accusing, insulting and throwing derogatory comments about the East. Very rarely that we see vise versa. Loosing face, Xenophobia and what not seems to have infected the East in a big way. All this is spewed out claiming that the West is 100% pure and humane. Is this really the correct situation today? Are the beings in the East really the people who makes this world such a bad place to live in? I add only two links down below (I can provide more), are they totally false? Why are humans SO biased?

GPO chairman Sophon Mekthon said medical equipment and supplies had to be imported from overseas because production in Thailand cannot meet demand.

But we're in control and can meet all demand???

China went berserk when the US limited travel from China at the end of January. Now China has blocked ‘all foreigners’ from entering China. US blocks ‘people’ traveling from China and China blocks ‘all foreigners’. Will you criticize the CCP for that? 
 

This isn’t an east vs west thing. This is a ‘don’t believe the CCP’ thing. 
 

Taiwan has done an amazing job in handling the virus. Maybe the best in the world. They’re right next to China. As many Taiwanese have said, “We know the CCP better than anyone else”. How very true. 
 

You should never be afraid to criticize bad ideas. And covering up a novel coronavirus and lying about people-to-people transmissions of said virus is the motherlode of bad ideas. And don’t worry, ideas don’t have feelings.

Absolutely. Agree 100%.

Would add... Never be afraid to state the TRUTH - about anyone.

The government had already allocated Bt1.5 billion to procure 264,000 N95 masks and 350,000 PPE sets. That is approx. $45 million dollars for 614,000 masks and PPE, that's a seriously high cost per unit. Somebody is going to get a nice backhander when placing that procurement order... No doubt just another misunderstanding with the published numbers.

CCP is accident prone, along with embarrassing itself trying to replicate US’s position in the world

 

(If you have a choice, who the hell wants to be controlled by communists)

 

unless you are a Han Chinese nationalist trying to fool people, hoping to protect a nation from losing face, the Wuhan virus came from Wuhan, China, from a type of horseshoe bat, which it’s natural habitat is 600 miles away in Zhoushan, China,

 

close by the epicenter of the outbreak, near the wet market, there is a level 2, research lab, where researchers, used research on 2000 different types of viruses, mostly bats, level 2, is weak security lab, level 4, is high security lab,

 

CCP covered up the outbreak October/November onwards, that means with Chinese mass tourism, most countries didn’t know they were already infected with some cases in November/December 

 

CCP locked up whistleblower doctors in December, then lied to the world about human to human transmission until mid-January. Let’s also remember, they sent a trade team to sign phase one trade deal in January, because of last years Chinese swine disease, which they had to kill 50% of their pig population, and US is large pig exporter, and they still never warned the world on the new virus.

 

CCP are wholly to blame, their communist system is the reason the world was deceived and lied too, for more than 2 months on the severity of the outbreak In Wuhan 

 

Let’s not even begin to dissect their fake numbers of deaths, it’s what communist countries do, very little human rights, just look at the way, one mortuary had thousands of urns to hand back, there are 35 mortuarys in Wuhan alone, and CCP claimed their country death total was 2-3,000 from the Wuhan virus

 

very few people will ever know the truth if it was an accident by CCP or deliberate by CCP, or even less now are saying it’s natural from the wet market, but more information is connecting the low level 2 research lab in Wuhan, than a natural cause, the CCP and their system is the reason for this mess, if they were more honest even in December, the world would have 95% less of a problem from the Wuhan virus, and the biggest talking points in Thailand would be air pollution

Dr. Li Wenliang got questioned at a police station is considered as got locked up? Anyway, Dr Li didn't know that a respiratory disease doctor, Dr Zhang Jixian, from a different hospital had already reported to the proper health authorities on Dec 27 and investigations were on the way. Dr Li was just a forwarder of rumours that he received from other doctors. He was never involved in actual suspicious pneumonia cases because he was just an eye doctor.

WHO was informed by China national health authorities on Dec 31, 2019 and the whole world was told about it:

China probes pneumonia outbreak for Sars links: State media

Why do you want to twist the facts?

Don't think too highly about the Taiwanese. It's a Chinese cultural thing. Here's a good story for you:

bad quality batches out of how many?  even so, seems even the usa is fighting for chinese masks.

 

but who to blame for this one?  the americans for paying double the contract value, in cash, or the chinese for welching on a deal.
